Witches of East End Contest

Tue Jul 15, 2014, 2:01 PM

Illustrate an Edgar Allan Poe scene, story, or element from "The Tell-Tale Heart," "The Black Cat," or "The Raven" that you would expect to see in the world of The Witches of East End. The winning work will be displayed in an episode of the series perhaps as a picture, book illustration, tarot card, or some other fanciful way chosen by the creative team of the show.

Edgar Allan Poe was a master of the mysterious and the macabre. The witches of East End would certainly indulge in the study of the master. Re-familiarize yourself with these three classic Edgar Allan Poe stories and absorb the context for the world of The Witches of East End.

Based on Melissa de la Cruz's New York Times best-selling novel, Witches of East End centers on the Beauchamp family, where in season one sisters Freya and Ingrid discovered they are witches with ancient magical powers. With the help of their mother Joanna and Aunt Wendy, they learned how to cultivate their craft and work together to defeat unearthly enemies seeking revenge on their family, while keeping their abilities a secret from the town.

This season, with the portal to Asgard open, what comes through will forever change the lives of the Beauchamps. Darkness surrounds East End as a new stranger arrives. Joanna is still weak with poison in her blood as the Beauchamps search desperately for a cure. With the death of Penelope, Killian and Dash's warlock powers return. #DarknessIsRising

I think they trust people when filling out a profile to be accurate in stating. 

I do not mind losing to a minor as a person but it is more of legal issue minimum age.

Next time try to post the original size setting that is sure fire way to meet the pixel rule.

If something like that does happen, no matter what, you have to show proof of id. So there is no way around it.

Never worry if you win or not, if you've created what you wanted and are happy with what you have done that's really all that matters, what other think is always good but if you follow your own way things will work out and if they don't then you did what you felt was right and in that you will always feel like you have won.
